{Estate Sale Temptations} I Was Afraid to Open This One...

The ad for the estate sale promised seventy years accumulation. What we saw at the actual sale was more like "do we have enough to bother with a yard sale?"  Aside from a collection of sewing machines and a latch hook Jesus rug, there wasn't anything interesting.

Then I saw this....

I should have put something in the pictures for scale, because you can't tell how big this is. Imagine the big packages of Quaker Oats. Full of gold glitter.

And did I mention that it was fifty cents? I bought it for the packaging because it's neat and old and that looks like such an insane ridiculous amount of glitter. But when we got home I carefully pried it open. Outside, because I didn't know what I was getting myself into.

I'm the very happy owner of an obscene amount of gold glitter. I can't even begin to justify it, but I knew this one would haunt me if I passed it up.

Would you have brought it home or left it behind?

How beautifully that glitter shines! I wonder why they had such a large container of glitter? I don't think I would have bought it, unless I had a plan to use it up. Like, maybe for stage props? Stars in the sky, etc.
Oh it is so pretty!

Yes I would have bought it! How wonderful to have vintage glitter to use on Christmas projects or cards or really any holiday!!
We are getting up early tomorrow, Friday, to go to an estate sale in a barn which begins at 7AM! Yikes! Hope to find some treasures too.
